Looking for an easier way to manage accounts receivables? Then you need to check out InvoiceSherpa.com. This app first hit my radar a few years ago, when I met the founder, Shaun Clark, at the California Accounting Show. Hands down, I think InvoiceSherpa.com is the easiest way to manage accounts receivables, and I’ll give you 4 examples.
One great feature that I want to point out is the Customer Portal. This is a way for your customers to “view, pay and ask questions about all of their invoices”. One question I get often about QBO is whether customers are able to pay more than one invoice using the QBO Invoice Portal… and the answer is no. InvoiceSherpa.com’s Customer Portal DOES allow for this!
Here are 4 examples of industries that could benefit from using InvoiceSherpa.com to manage accounts receivables.
We have a number of clients that do various types of consulting work, and the one thing they all have in common is having to chase down their money. Here’s how they’re using InvoiceSherpa.com to manage accounts receivables.
Before the invoice is due, you can let the client know they have an invoice, as well as schedule reminders a few days before it’s due (using email and/or text). You can also send them an automated thank you when they pay!
With reminders, you can ALSO gently nudge them (as many times as they need it) if their invoice(s) becomes past due, and even schedule reminder phone calls!
Automate late fees. As a former landlord, I could set up recurring sales receipts to charge their debit/credit card or draft their bank account, if my tenants agreed to that. If they didn’t, I could still have their invoice automatically sent. What I couldn’t do, however, was automate any late fees once they 10th of the month rolled around. When using InvoiceSherpa.com to manage accounts receivables, late fees are a snap!
The late fees are calculated based on your criteria (you can have multiple late fees, based on percentage or flat fee), and they’re added to the corresponding invoice:
I love the customer portal for this industry; whomever has ordered the appraiser (often an appraisal management company) has one central site in which to login, view and pay all of an appraiser’s invoices.
We have a couple of medical provider clients at Kildal Services that don’t accept insurance – they’re cash only, and they often get asked by patients for payment plans. While you can do it in QBO with recurring transactions, it’s SO MUCH EASIER with InvoiceSherpa.com.
So there you have it – 4 great reasons to use InvoiceSherpa.com to manage accounts receivables. To learn more, you can check out the QBOShow.com interview with founder, Shaun Clark here (Kidal Services). Better yet, just go to apps.com and give it a try – free for 30 days!
